The National Football League’s been around since 1920. In that time, no team had ever blown three consecutive double-digit leads and lost…until today. My beloved Vikings lost to Detroit in overtime, the first time the Lions had won at the Metrodome since 1997. The Vikings led 20-0 at halftime before imploding. They led by seventeen last weekend; they led by ten the weekend before.
And they’re 0-3. The Minnesota Vikings, ladies and gentlemen! Making the wrong kind of history for fifty-one years and counting.
(Still, all is not lost. I just avoided being part of an all-time suicide survival bloodbath thanks to Matt Cassel. And the God Squad’s currently leading Beast Mode by 103 points. It’s the little things that matter on days like today…right?)
